10/6/2011 - Construction Activity on the East Bay Bike Path

While the City of East Providence conducts improvement to the wastewater system, there will be some construction activities in this area. These construction activities may temporarily increase local noise levels, dust and other disturbances. The construction will also restrict access to the East Bay Bike Path, but this will be a temporary disturbance only. When the construction is complete, the bike path will be re-paved and your access will return to its current status. AECOM and the Department of Public Works are working to ensure the construction schedule is as least disruptive to you as possible.

A new sewer forcemain will be installed in Veterans Memorial Parkway and the East Bay Bike Path. The project will start at Watchemoket Cove, proceed north on Veterans Memorial Parkway to the bike path, and then continue south along the bike path to Washington Ave.

Start Date: On or about 11/1/11
Construction duration is expected to be approximately 5.5 months
Work Days: Monday to Friday
Work Hours: 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Closures: Approximately 2.5 miles of the East Bay Bike Path will be closed from the
bike path parking lot on Veterans Memorial Parkway (adjacent to the Metacomet
Country Club) to Riverside Square.

If you have any questions or require information, please call Steve Small of AECOM @ 401-680-5994.
